***Construction Notice***

Woodend Conservation Area will have temporary blocked trails and limited usage for the immediate and indefinite future while construction of new facilities is being completed. 

 

Woodend

With sweeping vistas of Lake Ontario and the escarpment slopes below, Woodend is considered to have been an observation point during the War of 1812 for both armies. Woodend’s location was at the center of the action, with the Queenston Heights battle 6 miles east, Beaver Dams battle 3 miles southwest and Lundy’s Lane battle 6 miles southeast.

Woodend Conservation Area

Hike or ski the trails of Woodend, including the Bruce Trail, as they meander through the meadow and escarpment forest and slope. The forest community is composed largely of hardwood species with scattered representatives of Carolinian species such as black cherry, black oak and paw paw.

This area is a perfect venue for passerine bird watching, and a historic limestone kiln reminds of this historic site’s link to the past.

Woodend is also home to students participating in outdoor education programs in the education centre, which is leased by the District School Board of Niagara.
